Why not? In many cases we should use "just as" instead of the subject but IMO in some other cases "just like" may be a correct choice. Jusr check "like vs as"

Just like is slightly less efficient than like, but there is nothing grammatically incorrect with just like.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any official GMAT SC questions that include "just like" in the correct answer, but there's no reason why "just like" would be automatically wrong. "Just like" appears in the incorrect answer of at least two official questions, but the use of the word "just" isn't the deciding factor -- in both examples, "just as" is in the correct answer instead of "just like." And "like" vs. "as" is a different issue entirely.

If you have a copy of the OG (basically any edition), check out question #52 in the diagnostic at the very beginning of the book, or check out this thread: https://gmatclub.com/forum/just-like-th ... 79021.html
